Quantum Trio: Red Fog

Read "Red Fog" reviewed by Geno Thackara

As one would hope for an outfit on its third studio release, the Quantum Trio has established a sonic niche while refusing to settle into it.

Quantum Trio: Quality Studio Live

Read "Quality Studio Live" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Like its cover, Quality Studio Live is an interestingly skewed mix of the familiar and the distorted. It was indeed recorded in a studio (with sound quality to match), yet it benefits from the vibe of a live audience. The deliberate structures of the pieces still allow for kinetic interpretations in the moment.

Quantum Trio: Duality: Particles & Waves

Read "Duality: Particles & Waves" reviewed by Geno Thackara

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
